Those 10-point lists

Have you ever noticed that most lists provided in those self-help books often contain EXACTLY 10 points? Ten ways to lose weight…ten ways to improve your presentation…etc.

Whenever I see a list of ten items, I often wonder if the author has either  shaved off or added a point or two just so the number comes to 10. Why is it not 11 or 9? Is it mere coincidence that there are exactly 10 ways to lose weight?

What do you think?
